Qualitative follow-up of the British Gambling Prevalence Survey 2007

Abstract

Presents results from {NatCen's} qualitative follow up interviews of 43 participants of the British Gambling Prevalence Survey 2007. Finds that four types of gamblers are identifyable (peripheral, enthusiastic, business and compulsive gamblers) and that people's engagement in gambling exists along a spectrum. The gambling types differ in terms of behaviours and experiences, spending and monitoring, and impact of gambling. Four triggers into and out of compulsion were identified: engaging in new forms of gambling, changes in accessibility (location or payment type), changes in personal circumstances, and changes in exposure.
